7:02 am
latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. it appears patience is wearing thin in the room where the president is meeting at the white house with eight top congressional leaders. both sides accuse the other of moving the goal posts, of failing to lead, and now it appears the president has had enough. they may have been all smiles at the start of the meeting. but tensions flared after house majority leader eric cantor, a republican from virginia, repeatedly proposed a series of short-term extensions of the debt limit if a larger deal proved unattainable. i said i was willing to come off my insistence one vote he told reporters afterwards. i asked the president would that be something he would consider? well, that's when he got very agitated seemingly and said that he has sat here long enough and that no other president, ronald reagan wouldn't sit here like this and that he has reached a point that something's got to give. cantor says the president shoved back his chair and walked out. a description democrats and the
7:03 am
white house dispute. when cantor tried to argue for a third time about doing a short-term deal, he was shut down and sat ashen face with a lump in his throat. the president finished the meeting speaking several minutes woe not be deterred in doing what is best for the country. democrats contend the two sides are making progress despite the acrimony. democrats still want to eliminate certain tax deductions for the wealthy while republicans want spending cuts equal to or greater than the 2.5 trillion dollar debt limit crease on the table. august 2nd deadline nearing moody's putting the bond rating unreview and ben bernanke warned congress a default could be catastrophic. >> there could have to be significant cuts in social security, medicare, military pay or some combination of those. >> reporter: the president and
7:04 am
congressional leaders are going to go back at it today. sit down again and talk and the president, we're told, has given them until friday to try and define the contours of a larger deal if they can't reach that deal by then, he has told them they need to drill down and figure out what they achieve. >> another deadline. cbs' nancy cordes for us, thank you. joining us now what he is hearing about the conflicting accounts is cbs senior white house correspondent bill plante. what are the ones in the room saying? >> reporter: good morning. the democrats familiar with the debt negotiations, as they prefer to be called around here, say that cantor's account is completely overblown. they say, people in the room say that mr. obama told the leaders enough is enough with delay and refusal to compromise. let's stop the posturing and positioning and stop catering to the political base and let's start compromising. a republican source quoted the president saying would ronald reagan be sitting here? i have reached my limit. this may bring my presidency
7:05 am
down, but i will not yield on this. after a version of those exchanges, the president pushed back his chair and left the room saying, "i'll see you tomorrow." but according to democrats in the room, he did not storm out. before he left, as nancy said, the president told them that they have got until friday to figure this out or something has to be done. now, all of this drama is a huge distraction, of course. in today's meeting, talk about the possible payroll tax cut and enforcement mechanisms for cutting and spending. one source says if they can make a little progress on that, they will be closer to a deal. chris? >> cbs' bill plante for us, thank you. failure to reach a deal on raising the debt limit could affect the average american. rebecca jarvis is here with more on that angle for us. >> good morning. as all of the attention is focused on who said what in washington, americans across the
7:06 am
country are beginning to fear the consequences if the debt issues aren't resolved quickly. >> i cannot guarantee that those checks go out on august 3rd if we haven't resolved this issue. >> reporter: when the president said social security checks may not go out on time next month, seniors across the country took notice. >> the president -- >> when i saw that, it shocked me but i said, no, this cannot happen, not in this country. >> reporter: 80-year-old cora meruelo is terrified about the government being late on a payment. if it comes for that she may not be able to pay for her heart medication. >> if i don't get social security how can i cover my expenses? >> i don't know how any of us will survive without it. >> reporter: 55 million americans receive social security checks every month and the thought of having to live without those checks, even for a few days, is unthinkable. >> i may be able to pay my rent,
7:07 am
but, you know, i'd have to not eat, you know? have you been to the supermarket lately. >> reporter: experts say delaying social security isn't just a scare tactic, but a definite possibility. >> unless that debt limit is increased, i think social security recipients are in line, along with everyone else, to get the limited amount of cash that is going to be available to the government, starting early in august. >> reporter: while most believe the washington debate will eventually be resolved and any delay would be temporary, seniors across the country are hoping politics can be put aside sooner, rather than later. >> senators and congressmen don't get social security, they get really big pensions for life, so i don't think they really care whether anybody else out there starves. >> clearly, no one is taking this lightly. >> folks depend on it. rebecca, thanks. there is news this morning of another arrest in the phone hacking scandal in britt.

7:12 am
gadhafi forces they say about four miles or so down the road that way. one difference today is you can't hear it right now but a few minutes ago, the sound of jets in the air, presumably nato air cover. this is the fringe of the area that the rebels control, about a hundred-mile strip that runs from here back towards the tu niecian border. the issue now is whether to push forward to the town of garan a major crossroads which would open up the route to tripoli. the real question, though, is whether these guys are prepared to make that kind of move and the indications now in terms of weapons and control and tactics is that they aren't. mark phillips, cbs news, in qualish, libya. the murder of 8-year-old liba. a suspect erin is in custody

white house talks resumed at a time when it is running out. intense reactions between president obama and eric cantor especially. the president reportedly told republicans, enough is enough. moody's ever service is considering lowering the u.s. credit
7:32 am
turning to politics, sarah palin set a date to announce whether she'll run from the white house. michele bachmann is running and gaining momentum, becoming a threat to front-runner mitt romney. jan crawford joins us from washington. good morning. >> minnesota congresswoman
7:33 am
michele bachmann has gotten mixed reviews. her stand on the debt ceiling is criticized for blocking a possible deal. outside of washington voters are liking what they see. >> president obama is holding the full faith and credit of the united states hostage so that he can continue his spending spree. hi, everybody! >> reporter: challenging the president on the debt ceiling debate, michele bachmann is the candidate on the rise. recent polls show she's leading mitt romney in iowa, the latest release wednesday of likely iowa caucus goers has her with a 13 point edge, 29% to romney's 16% and she's resonating with voters across the country, moving up eight points and ahead of sarah palin in the latest poll of republican voters nationwide and into second place behind romney. that's more than double what she was polling last month before her strong performance in the new hampshire debate. but her new prominence also is bringing tough scrutiny.
7:34 am
critics have challenged many of her assertions. >> we must make a bold choice. >> reporter: this week she was hit with criticism she's anti-gay and therapist at her husband's counseling practice tried to help make gay clients go straight. her husband denies those reports and bachmann is keeping her focus on key political issues like spending cuts. for months she's made clear where she stands on the debt ceiling. highlighting in her campaign ads. >> i will not vote to increase the debt ceiling. >> reporter: bachmann insists there's no need to increase the debt ceiling and says president obama is exaggerating the risk of a default. >> we cannot go on scaring the american people. we need to be truthful, and i call on the president and the treasury secretary to tell the truth to the american people. >> reporter: sarah palin has been watching this from the side lines but last night she told fox's sean hannity she'll make a
7:35 am
decision by august. >> i would offer myself in the name of service knowing confidently that i have those common sense fiscally conservative pro private sector policy experience and ideas that can be put to good work for this country. >> reporter: now if palin were to get in, that obviously could really slow down bachmann's rise. if palin gets in, erica that could change in, i'm not talking about moving pieces around on the chess board, that would turn the chess board completely upside down. we'll know soon enough. >> yes we will. we bring in cbs news political analyst john dickerson. good to have you with us this morning. quickly when it comes to sarah palin she said she's going to say something soon, probably august. do you think she's made up her mind at this point? >> it's hard to know with sarah palin. we have the periodic moments where she disappears for a little while and comes back on the scene. she's on the cover of "newsweek"
7:36 am
magazine. she's hinting and flirting, seems like she's reasserting herself in the moment when michele bachmann is on the rise and in the debt negotiations so she looks like she's doing something. >> michelle bamichellebachmann race, seeing a rise in iowa. what is giving her this momentum, john? >> we always knew there would be two primaries in the republican primary, in the establishment, mitt romney is ahead and the anti-romney candidate, somebody else who represents the kind of core conservatives, the movement conservatives and that's the group that michele bachmann is at the head of and speaks for so she is rising up in that group, they like what she's saying. they used to say you can't run as a politician from washington but she's using that as her strength. she's saying i'm in washington fighting the establishment and that's working well for her.
7:37 am
>> jan, rick perry could decide by labor day whether or not he's jumping in. what is he waiting on? >> he's waiting on the end of the legislative session, now had minor back surgery and also going to see how things play out the rest of the month going into that straw poll in iowa in the middle of august but my sources say that he is going to get in this race obviously that will have a huge impact on bachmann and other people who as john says are trying to be that alternative to mitt romney so he would really shake things up if he gets in. it will be interesting to see what voters say about the candidates. when i was in iowa and here's what's remarkable about michele bachmann. over and over and over people said to me she's so genuine, she's so real. there's something about her that comes across as this authentic, real person and voters really feel like they can relate to that. she speaks for them. >> so john, how would that translate on a national level? >> well this is the challenge for michele bachmann is that e
7:38 am
authenticity in iowa, key state for her, born there, that translates well for her in her constituent but in other states she needs to find a way to be authentic and support a specific portion of the party but show she can play on the national level. is she a contender? how would she look against barack obama, how do people see her in the oval office. at the moment she's a force but the question is, is she is a contender. >> and with rick perry perhaps jumping in, could shake things up. anybody else that either one of you have heard of, who may be jumping in besides palin and perry at this point? >> erica, everyone's been throwing out names for mud because people think the field is rather week. we're seeing bachmann picking up steam, hints that perry is going to get in, the field is looking settled. you hear things maybe new jersey governor chris christie is going to get in, even though he's said 1,000 times he's not.
7:39 am
john, what do you think? >> nobody else is out there, and even perry or palin, the challenge is getting in late is not easy. this is a difficult thing to run for president and it's a long, hard slog and so these supercandidates who might sweep in out of the wings it ain't going to be so easy for them. >> thank you both. just ahead the u.s. soccer team on the quest for a second world cup championship. we're cheering them on all the way. you're watching "the early show" on cbs. ♪

good morning. starting in san francisco, where lots of activity is still on scene of this accident at the intersection of octavia and oak involving a car hauler that hit a pedestrian there in the road. it is a fatal accident. it's going to take time to clear. as a result the central freeway is back up to 80. give. northbound 280 slow from meridien to lawrence expressway. >> we are going to warm up this afternoon. but not by a whole lot. temperatures going to be sitting in the 70s in those inland spots. we are going to see sunshine and some blue skies. check this out. it's not all bleak. it may be chilly out there, it's still going to be a beautiful day overall. so temperatures today are going to hit highs similar to yesterday. those 70s inland, 60s along the bay shores, at the coast keeping it in the 50s. going to be breezy there. and over the seven-day forecast, a slight warmup over the weekend and then warming up for the start of next workweek. ,,,,,,,,

8:02 am
the debate heated up. house minority leader eric cantor says the two-hour meeting ended with a threat from the president after hearing short-term extensions if they couldn't agree on a bigger deal. i said i was willing to come off my insistence that come through with a vote. so i asked the president would that be something that he would consider. well, that's when he got very agitated seemingly and said that no other president, ronald reagan, would sit here like this and that he's reached a point that something's got to give. eric, don't call my bluff, the president warned. i'm going to the american people with this. and with that eric said abruptly he shoved back his chair and left thement radio. he insists that mr. obama left on much better terms simply saying enough is enough, see you tomorrow. despite the drama the president and congressional leaders are meeting again tomorrow and every day in d.c. others on capitol hill are not
8:03 am
so open to negotiations. >> president obama, quit lagging. >> this scathing rant was posted to the internet accusing the president of using scare tactics for political purposes. >> you know darn well if august 2nd comes and goes there's plenty of money to pay off our debt. >> reporter: wednesday a rating service warned with the deadline looming it was putting america's triple-rating bond under review. if there's any good news here it is that at today's meeting scheduled for later this afternoon there are actual items on the agenda like extending the payroll taxes and getting more revenues. it is still possible progress can be made. chris? >> thank you, bill. i'll take it here. in new york last night the funeral for a murdered 8-year-old leiby kletzky had thousands turn out in brooklyn. parents let him walk home from camp alone for the very first

on. for the women behind me, they will will hopefully benefit from the things i have done. but i do think of myself as a pioneer. >> reporter: she may not think of herself as a pioneer but she's forging new ground. in fact, reynolds is one of only two female generals now active in the marine corps. at six feet tall she cuts an impressive imposing figure, but it is her stay chur as a leader earning her respect. a 1986 graduate and former basketball player at the naval academy she's the first female marine to hold a position in a battleground, like she did while positioned in afghanistan. now not just with the marines but to create them as well. >> at the end of the day we push them to be more than they think they can be. >> reporter: physically and mentally. for many the enduring image of
8:09 am
parris island comes from the vietnam film. hollywood's version is not that far off. this is a tough place. we joined general reynolds as she observed her first crews ball. a 54-hour test of strength, endurance and teamwork that each recruit must passed before being called a united states marine. any idea how tough it is to become a marine? >> it's the hardest we can make it. and we have to make it hard because our nation expects the united states marine corps to be the 911 force to always be ready, to always do the right thing. >> reporter: parris island graduates 20,000 marines every year. male recruits from east of the mississippi and all female recruits here. >> i get the pleasure from

watching from the very beginning until the day they march across the parade deck friday morning as young marines. it is an honor, a blessing and it is a tremendous responsibility. and i'm going to work hard every day to take good care of this depot and the marines here. >> reporter: it's a promise these future marines and all of the nation's busy servicemen and women around the world are counting on. russ mitchell, cbs news, parris island, south carolina. just ahead on "the early show" the budget cutbacks in one school district, did they lead to the death of a 10 yield student? we'll look at the growing shortage of school nurses and how parents can protect their children. this is "the early show" on cbs. booking a flight by itself is an uh-oh. see if we can "stitch" together a better deal. that's a hint, antoine. ooh! see what anandra did? booking your flight and hotel at the same time gets you

cutbacks happening one on campus is no longer the case. >> reporter: in tacoma, washington, 10-year-old mercedes meres took the school bus with her sister every day, but the ride on october 7th, 2008, would become her last. >> she left for school at about 8:05 or 8:06 in the morning. she was fine. next thing i know i got a call that she had an asthma attack and they called the emt. >> reporter: the family said even though the school had a plan of action and an epipen in case, mercedes didn't get her medication or cpr. school officials called an ambulance but it was too late. mercedes died in the hospital that morning. >> no one attempted cpr, no one put her care plan into place, nothing. >> reporter: due to cutbacks there were only 11 full-time nurses to cover 18,000 students in the bethel school district. this is not just a problem in washington state. nationwide there's no standard
8:15 am
for school health care. if you live in vermont, you have one school nurse to just over 300 students. if you live in michigan, you have one school nurse to just under 5,000 students. so there's a great range of what children are receiving in the united states for school health services. >> reporter: and as schools suffer budget cuts, school nurses are becoming scarce. >> it is not a shortage of nurses, it is a shortage of funded positions. school districts need to make that a priority and need to have a funded position available for a school nurse to be in the building. >> reporter: the school acknowledges they could use more funding and more help. >> certainly, i think every school district could use more nurses. oftentimes it is a matter of funding and finding personnel to staff those positions. >> reporter: janette meres says the lack of a school nurse not only contributed to mercedes' death but also killed the heartbeat of her family. >> i don't see it as being a

8:17 am
out there. as of 2010 more than 50% of public schools across the u.s. do not have a full-time registered nurse. 25% of schools have no nurse at all. now you think it is a financial thing, why isn't it getting more attention or why are school districts not doing more? >> well, what's fascinating to me is that parents in vermont have prioritized this. and parents in other places have not necessarily raised their voices. in the state of washington where mercedes and her family lived, there was one nurse per roughly 2,031 kid. parents should be asking is there a nurse in my school, and will there be somebody to take care? because the school says it is not a big deal. our school secretary or parent educator can do this, but there is a value in actually being a registered nurse because registered nurses know how to

live with my foster parents, were my refuge, that's where i went to hide. one thing i started off with was an empathy for the horse, and then as my understanding grew with the horses, then i started to learn how to help them. a lot of times, rather than helping people with horse problems, i'm helping horses with people problems. >> reporter: that desire to help led him to train other horse owners. it was at one of his clinics that artist cindy neal became a buck convert. >> i'd been riding horses all my life and never seen it this way. it seems like mental telepathy, the horse is reading his thoughts. he established this language so beautiful and yet simplistic and we can all do it. >> every movement you make on a horse, there is a perfect position of balance. >> reporter: cindy was so inspired she wanted to make a documentary about buck and his method, despite having no film experience. >> i went up to him and i asked
8:40 am
him and i thought well if he says no, i'm off the hook. >> i had said no many times over the years about people who wanted to document what i do, and she just have just caught me at the right time and i said "well, go ahead." >> reporter: what cindy captured in her directorial debut "buck" won over many who have never had a horse encounter. >> i don't know what you're trying to prove. >> reporter: with lessons more often about humans than horses. >> if you got a lot going on in your life, probably a lot it's a lot bigger story than this horse. >> he sneaks in all these life lessons when he's talking about horses. it's really a metaphor, for people. >> sound fair? >> look at buck's life and his transformation and realize that it doesn't matter what's happened in your past, that you, too, can leave that baggage behind and start today, and do whatever you want. >> it will make you better in

applies to dogs and children. is he traveling around doing clinics? >> travels nine months out of the year, constantly on the road. this is his life, isn't something he does just for the cameras. >> does he travel himself? seems soft spoken, a fairly private guy. is he, does he keep to himself or have other folks that help him out and go with him? >> he spends time with the people at his clinics but a family man. his wife and daughters are such a major part of his life as is his foster mother, betsy shirley and incredible. >> beautiful film. >> wonderful piece. >> katrina thanks. here's chris. thank you, the final installment of the harry potter series hits theaters tomorrow. the series has plenty of fans among grownups. michelle miller has more on the multigenerational appeal of the boy wizard. >> our world has faced no greater threat than it does
